Do you want to give back to your community?
- Do you have a life story full of highs and lows, setbacks and successes?
- Do you want to help move the world forward for the better and make positive change?
Well, I have good news for you. You can use your life story to make positive change in your community and help move the world forward for the better. Everyone has a unique life story and no mater what we have been through, there are universal themes that many people can relate to and NEED to hear.
My story is about growing up with a insufficiency mindset of LACK and FEAR. I felt I didn’t have what I need growing up to feel safe and secure financially, so I created a life around obtaining financial and material security. The thing I didn’t realize is that having money and a good job does not equal a life of HAPPINESS and PEACE. So the universe intervened to teach me this lesson by several personal and financial crisis. I now know that these were critical LIFE LESSONS necessary for me to re-align with the true essence of my purpose.
My purpose is to EMPOWER people with the tools to shift their perspective to one of GRATITUDE, PEACE, ABUNDANCE and COMMUNITY CREATION and CONTRIBUTION. So, I give back to my community by telling my story and sharing it with anyone and everyone who will listen. I know that they need to hear it because there are so many common themes that we are all trying to understand. You have a story also that people NEED to hear. By making yourself vulnerable and speaking to others about it, you help people realize they are not alone and that we are all connected and in this together. We can all make the shift towards peace, abundance and unity.
So… whether it is in line at the grocery store, at church or in a public speaking capacity, I CHALLENGE you to step outside of your comfort zone and let your voice be heard. Tell your story! Reach out to your local community organizations, shelters, schools and churches and let them know that you would love to volunteer to EMPOWER, MOTIVATE and INSPIRE their communities with your life story. You will be surprised how quickly they will take you up on your offer.
This month I shared MY life story within my community of South Los Angeles at the EMPOWERING WOMEN EVERY DAY’S signature monthly event, WOMEN’S NIGHT OUT WORKSHOP. This month’s workshop was different because usually it takes place in a hotel in Marina Del Rey, but because of the relationship that I have developed with the Los Angeles Urban League and Starbucks, we collaborated on a FREE workshop for the community. This specific Starbucks is a Starbucks Community Store in Baldwin Hills, where a portion of the revenue is given to the LAUL to reinvest in the community. I was honored to partner with them and provide important resources to the community which are based on my life experience.
So, I hope you have been empowered and inspired by my story and that you will push your limits and fight against your negative self-talk to go into the world supported by your greatest asset, your LIFE
Sending you Peace, Blessings and Vitality Celia
